Unfortunately I was on a motorcycle and didn’t get the opportunity to check on Yelp before I hit Barstow hungry. Was cruising by and saw the sign and turned on in. Turned out to be a terrible mistake. Terrible. Food not tasty and mostly cold....More

Stopped by here en-route to Bakersfield. The food was very good and the setting was charming. Interior decor is authentic Chinese and the staff was friendly. Location is convenient and just off the freeway.

This is basically the worst Chinese buffet I've ever been too. I should've checked TripAdvisor first. Bad food (kinda stunk in a weird way), rude service, filthy bathroom. Avoid at all costs. Should not be in business taking people's money.

Came to the restaurant with my wife at 4 pm on a Saturday and the place was dead empty. That should've been my cue to leave. The food was terrible, the service was non existent, and the place was filthy. Do yourself a favor and...More

This place is a real dump. That's D U M P! Cool to cold food, dirty tables and food on the floor say it all. The help staff was nowhere to be found. Do not go to this dump unless you are a health inspector.
